    I once owned a 1915, and my family a 1917. Happy to assist in any way. I rebuilt my 15, the 17 originally came from CA, ended up in WA, and was recently sold in WA again out of an estate. Don
  4. Sure looks like a Buick to me. Don P. 1906 F Spokane, WA
  5. I don't think so. Drums on Buick have equal band widths. Don P. 1906 F Spokane, WA
  6. Have to agree with the 1905-10 2 cylinder Buick. If it weren't for these cars, none of the others would exist
  7. The parts list does list a tool kit. Also a tire pump. I have never seen either.
  8. I agree on the McLaughlin Buick identification. I don't think the hood has hinges, just pinstriping and a bit of shadow in the photo. Having restored a 1910 F, all other indicators are in place.
  9. The 2 engine Chalmers, also known as the Duckbill Pludapus, is originally from Northern Idaho and was acquired from an old mine by Rich Morgan of Lewiston Idaho. Rich bought the car for extra engines for his 1909 Chalmers Detroit. I think he sold it to Bill Harrah. When in Rich's possession, the car was put into running condition. It always had cooling problems and was never toured. Rich is still alive, well, and touring out of Lewiston, Idaho. If you need his number, write me directly, and I'll pass it on. I'm sure he has pictures and more info on the car.
  10. Brass cars are great. I grew up around cars from the 20's and 30's that my dad collected. But I always went straight for the brass cars whenever one was around. Was lucky enough to spend a day or two with Bill Harrah in 1976 on the bi-centenial trans con tour. He drove a Thomas Flyer. Invited me to ride with him, I was 14, and dad came and picked me up in the next city! Mr. Harrah told me I could come and do brass cars with him anytime. Unfortunatly, he passed away before I ever got the chance. I now have a 1906 Buick F. Drove it 350 plus miles on a cross Washington State tour this summer. I'll take it anywhere. Figure it was broke when I got it, and probably will break again. Heck, that's more than half the fun of it! Additionally, Brass car folks are great. Met some of the finest people in my life talking brass cars!
  11. This was the best tour I have ever done. 350 plus miles. What a blast!! And the Buicks did preform very well. What a great car! Don Poffenroth
  12. Your corrections are right on! Next big early car event will be in July 2005 with the KISS 1 and 2 cylinder tour to be held in Waterville, WA.
  13. I had the purple lake 1906 Buick on this 330 mile tour. Made it all the way including a 4200 foot climb to the top of Steven's Pass in Washington on highway 2. The best tour of 1 and 2 cylinder cars ever! The following cars participated: 1911 Maxwell Ab - blue 1911 Maxwell Ab - yellow 1907 Tourist - yellow and creme 1908 Maxwell HC Touring -green 1914 Renault EK - blue 1909 Buick F - Red 1910 Buick model 14 - red roadster 1906 Reo Model A - red 1902 Olds curved dash - black 1906 Buick F - purple lake 1904 Rambler G - red 1913 International Highwheeler - red 1908 Northern - red - star on radiator 1907 Olds Straight front - black 1906 Reo Roadster - red 1905 Columbia - Green 1906 Cadillac tulip roadster - maroon 1907 Buick G - silver 1905 Toledo and 1910 Schacht did not make it out of Spokane. 1907 Buick F replaced one of those cars in Ritzville. 18 cars started - 17 made it to Safeco Field in Seattle. 12 drove every mile of the event.
  14. Hi Harry, I'm in Spokane and although I'm a Buick guy (1906) I wouldn't be interested in the Buick, but a old touring car always interests me! Be happy to come down and visit you and take a look. Could also bring a digital camera and take pictures of both cars to post.
  15. I think the Buick in the Museum is a Model 10, 4 cylinder. I'm guessing that someone is confusing the removable valve cages on the top of the head as plugs. Other than priming cups, there is nothing else on top of that engine to the best of my knowledge. Plugs should be on the side on the cylinder.
